The new R 1200 RS: the sports touring re-invented.

People who like to ride in sporty style can enjoy comfort, too. BMW presents the ultimate blend of a sports and touring motorcycle: the R 1200 RS. Thanks to its air/liquid-cooled 2-cylinder 4-stroke boxer engine with two overhead, spur gear driven camshafts and a counterbalance shaft, the sports touring bike delivers an impressive 92 kW (125 bhp) and 125 Nm at 6,500 rpm.

There's plenty to get enthusiastic about in terms of its visual appearance, too: the half fairing featuring symmetrical headlamps derived from two generations of the RR strikingly demonstrates the sporty flair of the R 1200 RS. Wind and weather protection is at the very highest level of course, with a windshield that can be simply height-adjusted by hand. Available in the characteristic paint finishes Cordoba Blue non-metallic and Light White non-metallic, the optional LED daytime riding light finally perfects the bike's instant recognition from a distance: here comes the new BMW sports touring motorcycle. But the best thing is to experience the R 1200 RS yourself, of course: To product page of R 1200 RS
